The overarching objective of this study is to provide information as to which global change-related control choices and forest management and utilization practices are most effective for both mitigating climate change and improving regional air quality. Four specific objectives are identified to address critical scientific issues linking global change with assessment of regional air quality and forest management practices: • Assess and compare how climate-responsive control choices will affect regional air quality • Assess how forest management and utilization practices will impact future regional climate and air quality • Quantify the sensitivities and dominant uncertainties associated with predicted impacts • Provide focused information for policy makers on the impact of climate change/global change on strategies to meet air quality policy goals in the future, including providing results for direct use in decision support analyses.
